Please note that to assure the standards of all University of the Arts London awards it is a requirement to have external examiners verify the level of student achievement. This involves sampling the assessment outcomes from units that contribute to the calculation of the award.  The University cannot award degrees without this external scrutiny. Therefore from October 2018 onwards external examiners will be required to ratify level 5 student achievement in the same way they currently do for Level 6.

*If you are a student in the final year of undergraduate study who enrolled prior to September 2017 you are not impacted by this change so please consult the Course Regulations 2018-19 Students enrolled BEFORE September 2017 Regulations. As work from your second year will not have been ratified by our External Examiners, it cannot be included as part of your award classification.
